Week 2

Hi Ducks!

 

I hope you are all staying safe and enjoying lots of family time at home. I was really pleased to see the work sent in by some people and I was especially proud of Pippa and Sophia for having a go at the plank challenge!

 

This week, I would love to see more work sent in by all of you as it keeps me entertained and brightens up my day when I get to see what you have been up to.

 

Remember to send any work into the email address below:

 

work@millhillandwoodcroft.co.uk

 

Keep staying safe and send in that work!

RUIN

After watching the short film clip, think about the questions below:

 

1) When is this story set?  How do we know?

 

2) What do you think has happened?

 

3) How did one man survive or are there more?

 

4) What is trying to stop him and why?

 

Writing activity

When the film ends, what happens next?

 

Will there be other characters?

 

Will there be more enemies?

 

Write the next part of the story.

Reading

 

Task to come later in the week.

Maths

Practise your maths skills using the different maths websites below.

Science

 

Create a model of the lungs

 

Method

1) Cut off the bottom of a 2 litre bottom.

2)  Attach balloons to the bendy part of the straws using a small rubber band, but be cautious not to make it too tight, as the airways would be closed and the model wouldn't work. 

3) Tie the straws together with another small rubber band, again making sure that the straws weren't pinched closed. 

4) Place the straws in the neck of the bottle and close off with modelling clay. 

5)Take the produce bag (you might need to trim it down a little bit) and place it over the bottom of the bottle, attach with a larger/thicker rubber band.  Make your model breathe by pushing in and out on the produce bag (aka the diaphragm), making sure the bottle is air tight.  The "lungs" will fill with air, but don't expect them to be blown up like party balloons.  It might take a little adjusting of the bag and pulling on the bag to fill the lungs the first time, but then it should work well.  If it doesn't work, begin troubleshooting.  The airways are most likely clogged somewhere along the lines.  Note that I do not use binder clips, as I felt it was an unnecessary expense.  Using your fingers to pull the produce bag in and out for breathing works just fine.

How can you make this even more entertaining?  Could you do it in fancy dress? Can you create different exercises for the letters in your name?

 

I  look forward to seeing any photographs or video clips.
